I’m a techie and although my kids are not techies they love technology and it is a part of their everyday lives. Honestly, technology gives them an advantage in learning that makes it easier to for me plan lessons and offer them classes that may not be offered locally.
Sharks are cool. SyFy thinks so, so does the Discovery Channel. I even think so (i’m no the diving type to go swim with the fishies though). My kinder first grader and I had a lot of fun creating, watching and reading during our Ocean Week.
Hands-on STEAM activities are the core of our homeschooling adventure. We currently do 2-3 projects a week depending on the length of time it takes to complete each one. While this is fun and educational it can be a hassle prepping and storing materials for each one.
Microsoft Onenote is a free note taking app available for desktops and mobile devices. OneNote is a leading competitor to the notebook app Evernote. Like Evernote you can use Microsoft’s OneNote to create notebooks for note taking, web clippings, images and a host of other information you want saved digitally and organized efficiently. To use OneNote you must have a Microsoft account, if you don’t you can sign up for one for free. Office 365 is not needed but you will automatically receive a OneDrive (5 GB cloud storage free) account that will backup your OneNote notebooks.
